One of the most touching stories I've heard was from my mother's uncle who visited Juno with some a couple of friends he served with. Each of them took a small bag of soil(this was long before airline restrictions) from Manitoba with them and sprinkled it on the beach. He said a lot of men died on the beach and never made it home, so they were bringing a small piece of home to them.

I brought sand home from Juno beach and if I ever get there again I’m going to bring some Canadian earth back with me to do the same thing in one of the cemeteries.
